Fitting Electric Showers

It is important to use an electrician when installing electrical appliances in your bathroom such as electric showers, heated towel rails, lighting, fans, shaving sockets etc. As with any situation that involves water and electric, fitting electric showers can potentially be a very dangerous job. It is important that you use a qualified electrician to fit your electric shower to comply with building, safety and wiring regulations associated with electrics in the bathroom.
LED (London Electricians Direct) can get to you quickly and evaluate what is needed to install your electric shower. Most electric shower installations are relatively quick for a qualified electrician to fit however a risk assessment must be evaluated depending on any other appliances you have, the placement of doors, walls and partitions.
Your electric shower will also have to be tested to comply to BS 7671 standards – ‘Requirements for Electrical Installations’ section 601. These tests will guarantee that the electrics will not pose any risk being in such close proximity to water.
